Jess Grinter

Design Director

Did you know that jess means elegant in Mongolian? Not really. But it would be appropriate. Designer, artist and global traveller extraordinaire, Jess exudes creativity in whatever she turns her hand to.

For over 20 years, she’s used her design talents to bring strategic communications to life. With an innovative approach to problem solving, a love of typography and a matchlessly elegant aesthetic, Jess prides herself on delivering design that’s always fresh and considered. Outside BWD, her wanderlust demands that she keep exploring Australia and the rest of the world, uncovering hidden gems.

Jess’ own business – Whileaway Guides – was the only Australian business chosen from 25 million accounts to feature in Instagram’s promotional video.
